Organised by F11 Foto Museum, Audrey by Bob Willoughby displays 90 photographs in accordance to the 90th anniversary of Audrey Hepburn’s birth and the 10th anniversary of the passing of renowned Hollywood photographer Bob Willoughby.
The selection ranges from Hepburn’s rise to fame, rare personal candid shots to classic movie stills and behind-the-scene. The exhibition celebrates the long lasting friendship between the photographer and the ethereal icon.
AUDREY BY BOB WILLOUGHBY
VISUAL IDENTITY DESIGN
Inspired by the colour of Audrey’s eyes and her favourite lipstick, we designed the exhibtion and its visual identity a gradation of colour. The vibrate spectrum reminds the viewers how Bob saw Audrey in real live: colourful and lively; in contrast to the black-and-white images captured on film.
The “Head Turner” section is presented as a 360 degree turning of Audrey, showing her head-turning beauty from every angle.
The palette in this section is inspired by her lipstick and her look in the 1960s. The shift from the serenity and elegance of green to the animated coral and orange hues aims to surprise and refresh the audience in between the two main sections.
Inspired by Audrey’s photographs taken at home, upholstered panels in neutral tones act as a balance between the colours and brings warmth and coziness to the set.
Motif of arches across the set and the visual identity are taken from the repetition of the shape in the photo collection displayed.
